PSY65050 - Personality Assessment:

(3 units)
In this course, the student will learn the basics of administering, scoring and interpreting several major psychological instruments, including; the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory 2 (MMPI-2), Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI), Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory - III (MCMI-III), Rorschach (Exner scoring), Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), and the Neo-Personality Inventory Revised (NEO-PI-R). Assessment of children and adolescents may be discussed briefly, but the primary focus will be on the adult client. This course will also address underlying concepts and limitations for instrument usage, diversity, ethical considerations in assessment, and elements in becoming capable and competent in psychological assessment. Data obtained from a personality assessment is only as good as the assessor so a large portion of this course will also be focused on presenting students with a conceptual model for assessment called the Therapeutic Assessment Model.
